Appalachian State Women’s Lose at Wofford

The App State women’s basketball team (2-5) faced a tough Wofford (6-2) squad on Saturday, falling to the Terriers, 71-42, on the road.

Freshman Chaé Harris was the Mountaineers’ top scorer, netting 13 points on the afternoon. She also matched graduate student Lauren Carter and sophomore Mariah Frazier with a team-high five rebounds. Redshirt senior Janay Sanders scored the second-most points for App State with 11. Twenty of the Mountaineers’ points were scored off the bench.

After a dry first quarter for the Black and Gold, Harris sunk back-to-back threes to cut into Wofford’s lead in the second. Shortly after, Harris found her way to the hoop for a layup, tallying eight of her 13 points in the second quarter alone.

Wofford’s hot shooting and strong rebounding throughout the game propelled them to a 29-point lead at the close of the third period. Jackie Carman, Lilly Hatton, and Rachael Rose combined for 42 of the Terriers’ points on the afternoon.

App State will host Johnson C. Smith on Dec. 10 at the Holmes Convocation Center. The game is set for a 2 p.m. tipoff and will be broadcasted on ESPN+
